Apple and Google have both been sued for patent infringement by Unwired Planet, a company that holds many early patents for mobile and cloud computing.
In the complaint filed against Google, Unwired Planet charges that Google knowingly developed technologies that infringed on Openwave’s patents. Google technologies such as Adwords, Google Wallet, Google search, Google Maps and the Android operating system all violate Unwired Planet’s patents, the company claimed.
Apple was hit with a similar lawsuit. The Apple products allegedly infringing Unwired Planet’s patents include the iPhone, iPad, iPod, the Apple App Store, the Apple Push Notification Service (APNS), iAds, and the location services used in the Safari Web browser and Apple Maps.
